Baltimore Humane Society Marks 87th Birthday with Call to Help End Plight of Homeless Pets!

August 18, 2014-Reisterstown, MD –  On Monday, August 18th, Baltimore Humane Society (BHS) will celebrate its 87th birthday. Founded in 1927 by philanthropist Elsie Seeger Barton, Baltimore Humane Society has saved, cared for, and re-homed countless numbers of animals. The no-kill shelter works aggressively to place each animal in a loving, permanent home while striving to end the euthanasia of healthy, adoptable animals by offering a low cost Veterinary Spay, Neuter & Vaccine Clinic.  It also advances the cause of humane treatment of animals through public education, and ensures a peaceful resting place for beloved pets through its full service public Memorial Park.

To celebrate its birthday, the no-kill shelter is calling on the public to help it put an end to pet homelessness. Here is its birthday wish list:

Celebrate with us as we look forward to another 87 years of fun and fur!
